Cottage Cheese Pancakes

Now that dairy is finally back in my diet, I have been enjoying all my favorite foods again . . . I've eaten spinach tomato pizza, had some Red Sox mint ice-cream, and the other night made the world famous Munsell Cottage Cheese pancakes.

I suppose they are really Dawson Cottage Cheese pancakes, as they were invented by my grandmother, Dru Dawson. Back in the day my mom's family was living on my dad's family's farm learning to live off the earth (it was the 70's). There were goats on the farm, and a surplus of goat cottage cheese, which apparently tasted nasty on its own. So Gramma came up with a recipe for cottage cheese pancakes, and we've been eating them ever since!

Don't worry, you don't have to have goats. I make them with regular cottage cheese, and they are ever so good, especially with real Maine maple syrup.

So here you go:

1 cup cottage cheese
4 eggs
3/4 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon brown sugar (I don't usually put this in, because I load on the syrup.)
1/2 cup milk
1 Tablespoon oil (I actually usually don't add the oil either!)

Throw it all in a bowl, mix, and cook on a griddle like any other pancakes. I cook them on the slower side, so as to make sure they cook thru all the way. Serve with lots of butter and maple syrup, mmm!
